As chairperson of the Blue Butterfly Foundation for Trauma & Abuse Ltd., I am writing to enlist your support for our ANNUAL APPEAL.
The foundation was established because people who have suffered trauma and abuse often need long term help to recover healthy functioning in their families and the community. The support from agencies such as Medicare is frequently not sufficient.
This foundation aims to assist recovery by meeting the cost of extended therapy and additional supports such as transport, food and medication where required.
One of our generous supporters who recognises the extent of need in the community says:
Support for survivors of trauma and violence is imperative. Access to counselling and therapy is often near impossible, especially when there are financial barriers. As a survivor myself, I donate to the Foundation to allow others the opportunity to heal without financial stress. I am grateful for the excellent work the foundation does.
There are many stories. This is one from Dani, a previous client.
I attended the centre due to difficulties arising from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. My daily life, ability to work and ability to parent was significantly affected by this disorder. At one point in my treatment, I had exhausted my Medicare subsidised sessions and knew I would struggle to afford ongoing therapy.
It was a tremendous comfort to know that if needed, Blue Butterfly would cover that gap for me and provide the financial support to continue my recovery, as if I had to stop therapy suddenly, I would have struggled greatly.
If you would like to support the recovery of clients like these, you can donate through our website
You can also support the foundation by pledging an amount each month or a *period of your choice.

Thank you again,
Anne Dowling – Chairperson Coral Palmer- Founder
